Potato, Sausage and Chicken Casserole
Hearty and satisfying, this comfort food goes from oven to table in one dish. Assemble this dish up to eight hours in advance and bake when you're ready to serve.
PREP TIME: 15 minutes
COOK TIME: 35 minutes
1 large Yukon Gold potato, cut into 1" pieces
1 pound boneless chicken breast, cut into 1" pieces
1/2 pound ground sweet or hot Italian sausage
1 small yellow onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup black olives, sliced
1 cup Fontina cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fill a medium sauce pan halfway with water and a pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Add potatoes and cook for five minutes. Drain immediately and set aside.
In a small frying pan, sauté sausage over medium heat until cooked through. Remove sausage and sauté onion in fat for five minutes, until onion is softened. Remove from heat.
In a medium baking dish, combine potatoes, chicken, sausage, onion, garlic and olives. Sprinkle cheese over the top of the casserole.
At this point, you can refrigerate the assembled casserole for up to eight hours before continuing on with the next step, or you can bake immediately after assembly.
In an oven preheated to 375 F, bake casserole for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, garnish with parsley, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
